Original recording and DAT and CDR transfer by your truly Miner Gleason ( Drop me a line and let me know what you think of this stuff.

Unfortunately, I did not keep the original master reels; at the time I was a poor college student and needed to conserve tape, and so I dubbed the masters to 1st sen reels, editing out all the commercials and between-set dead air, and then reused the masters to record other things.

General Flaws: There is evident FM compression, occasional distortion, and the sound is variable though mostly quite good. Alas, there is also a touch of Dolby decode mistracking. Me culpa; I committed the cardinal sin of Dolby B recording by neglecting to include a reference calibration tone on the tapes, so I had to set it by ear, and did the best I could, but it’s not exactly perfect.
